I saw this statue on a walking tour of Porto with Viking River cruises. Unfortunately, Liberdade square was under construction so it was difficult to get much of a view. It shows Pedro on a horse handing over the constitution to the people of Porto. Dom Pedro was only King of Portugal for less than a month but first Emperor of Brazil for almost 10 years.

A beautiful statue in honor of King D. Pedro IV. It is located in the Praca da Liberdade, a very nice place. The statue with a stone base is large, about 10 meters high, and was made of bronze by the artist Celestin Anatole Calmels. It shows Pedro on a horse handing over the constitution to the people of Porto. It is impossible not to meet this beautiful equestrian monument dedicated to the king of Portugal and the first emperor of Brazil. It dominates Praca da Liberdade and attracts attention as you stroll through the city center.

Impressive statue of a King who was only King of Portugal for less than a month but first Emperor of Brazil for almost 10 years.
It's located at the bottom end of the grand square, opposite the Intercontinental Palace Hotel.
He is surrounded by very impressive buildings.

With the special masonry dominating the Plaza this statue of the former Portuguese Head of State towers majestically above. From this point numerous attractions radiate by foot.

The statue is so high off the ground, that you can hardly see any details, but I will take their word for it that it is indeed the likeness of Dom Pedro. In any event, it is certainly gets your attention, being so tall and in the middle of one of Lisbon's most delightful squares.

This is an elegant monument to a former king of Portugal at the end of the central square, Placa Liberdade, not far from Sao Bento train station. Its impressive and it dominates that end of the placa but that's about it really.

This majestic statue of Dom Pedro, who became king of Portugal in 1826, towers over Rossio Square. It is one of the better monuments to Portugal's past.

Liberdade Square is one of the main squares in Oporto and there is the equestrian statue of Pedro IV. In the background one can see the City Hall on the hill.
